you so much. >>> now, dan harris has the top stories developing this morning. >> thank you. good morning, everybody. we're going to start with the large and lethal highway pileup in texas. police have never seen anything like this. dozens of cars, trucks and suvs, piled on top of one another. look at this. smashed like toys. rescuers desperately trying to find survivors and pull them out of the wreckage. abc's ryan owens tells us how this happened. >> reporter: crews spent all night trying to untangle this mangled mess of metal. they think there's as many as 150 cars, trucks and semis piled up on this stretch of texas highway. two people, a man and a woman in this suburban were killed. almost 100 others spent their holiday in the hospital. >> look at this 18-wheeler right here. >> reporter: dense fog blinded drivers here on thanksgiving morning. investigators say most of them couldn't see a foot in front of them. >> it takes just one person to unexpectedly hit their brakes. and there's the domino effect. >> bam. you could hear it for miles. >> reporter: it happened on interstate

to show you a tape from dan senor on "morning joe" he's a foreign policy adviser to mitt romney. he took on mitt romney critics piling on the former nominee. let's listen to dan senor. >> tens of thousands of people, you could hear the top ten romney surrogates at the event. i'm backstage with some of them, i won't mention their names but talking about romney like he's reagan. you know, the debate performances were the best debate performance of any republican nominee in presidential history. this guy's iconic. they were talking about him, because they believed he was going to win in four, five days. in fact, some of them were talking about transition to position themselves for romney cabinet. >> first to jump -- >> i won't say who they are. they know who they are. they were on television, the body was -- unbelievable. five, six days later. absolutely eviscerating him. >> there you go, it's calling being two-faced. it has to do -- people at headquarters, they show up at election night, unless the guy or woman loses and they get excited about the guy near election night because they want
the other day. >> i'll tell you would -- go ahead, erin. >> i was going to say let's go back to dan's first comment. dan is a smart guy but that was naive of him to say. look, no one liked mitt romney to begin with. people don't like mitt romney now. he had a good first debate and so people thought, oh, maybe he actually has a chance. but the republican party never liked mitt romney 37 they never felt in love with him. he happened to be the establishment guy who was going to get the job. you look to the 2016 field of republican candidates and a lot of the electorate loves those people. like marco rubio. the electorate loves him. i'm sorry, i think dan was very off on those comments. >> chris, there's something deeper here we haven't talked about -- >> let's start with something simple. let's assume the republican party wants to rebuild and to be a four quarter offense, they want to compete in the northeast, southeast, midwest and the west. let's assume that. are you saying rubio is a better candidate to compete, a good candidate to compete in the northeast? where would he win in the northea
nomination. i'm joined now by dan lothian at the white house for us. and dan, what do we hear from mccain and graham this weekend? it seems maybe they provided a little bit of wiggle room now. >> it certainly does appear that way. what we're seeing is a change in tone. there had been sort of this harsh rhetoric they wanted to block this nomination, said they would block this nomination. and now there seems to be this tone where they want to give susan rice a chance to explain herself, that they're willing to sit down and talk over these issues with her. at a listen to what senator mccain had to say about this over the weekend. >> i think she deserves the ability and the opportunity to explain herself and her position, just as she said. but she is not the problem. the problem is the president of the united states. >> now, again, we should point out that she has not been nominated for this post, but there's a lot of speculation that she is the top choice from this white house to replace secretary clinton when she departs. also another name, john kerry on that list. but again, nothing de
of the top contenders for the job, the u.n. ambassador susan rice. dan lothian's noticed the change in tone. dan's joining us now with more. what's the latest on the successor for hillary clinton, dan? >> reporter: that's right. this is senator, john mccain, who had been working to discredit ambassador rice, had been digging in on this, criticizing her, prompting the president at his news conference to say, if they wanted to go after anyone, they should go after him. now there's a noticeable shift and senator mccain says he's ready to listen. from threat tong block her possible nomination to south korea south korea to a willingness to hear her out, senator john mccain seems to be dialing back his public opposition to ambassador susan rice. >> i think she deserves the ability and the opportunity to explain herself and her position. >> reporter: another vocal critic, senator lindsey graham, is still expressing doubts about her but avoided answering whether he would still stand in the way of a rice nomination. >> when she comes over, if she does, there will be a lot of questions asked after he
. anyhow, stan is with us as well as the regular team. peter ogborn and dan henning. >> good morning. >> bill: phil backert has the phones and cyprian bowlding has the video camera this morning. tom ricks, great writer, great journalist, basically a war correspondent, author of this new book "the gamble" won the pulitzer prize for his first book "the fiasco," was invited on fox news to talk about benghazi. he started out by saying i think this whole thing has been hyped by fox news. jon scott the anchor was offended by the fact he would suggest that fox news, an ambassador was killed. how can you mean hyping it. here's how that exchange goes. listen to tom ricks flatten fox news. >> when you have four people dead, including the first u.n. ambas -- u.s. ambassador in more than 30 years, how do you call that hype? >> how many security contractors died in iraq? do you know? >> i don't. >> no. nobody does because nobody cared. we know that several hundred died but there was never an official count done of security c
shows seems to me and to many to be misplaced. >> cnn's dan lothian is at the white house. so, dan, is it even worth -- is it even worth the president nominating susan rice? because there just doesn't seem to be any meeting of the minds about her on the republican side. >> reporter: you're right. i guess it's always possible that the woit house could give up the fight on her but also possible is that if the president believes she is the right person for that position, then i don't think this is something that will move him off of susan rice. but nonetheless, the white house is pushing very hard in defending her, as you pointed out. we should point out again that this is all a hypothetical discussion because the president has not nominated her. nonetheless the white house defend i defending her, saying that she was only acting on information that came from the intelligence community and really that everyone is focused on the wrong thing. what the focus should be on is on what happened in benghazi, who is responsible for it and this those people be brought to justice, carol. >> susan
. our dan lothian is watching the comings and goings at the white house. and at some point, dan, congress is going to have to either come together on this and work with the president on this, and yet we're seeing all these various different meetings all around the communities and the country. it looks like there's a particular strategy that's playing out when it comes to the president right now. >> reporter: that's right. a lot of negotiations have taken place in the staff -- on the staff level. the president himself did speak with speaker john boehner on the phone over the weekend. there was that meeting with the lawmakers, the leadership just before the president went overseas on his southeast asia trip. but so far, no additional meetings that we know of on the schedule for the president to sit down with congressional leadership to try to hammer this out. i can tell you that i spoke with an administration official who told me that treasury secretary timothy geithner will be playing a leading role in these live in negotiation negotiations -- fiscal cliff negotiations. gene spel

problems for the country, maybe even a crisis. brings us to dan lothian at the white house this morning. dan, good morning. senate goes back to work this afternoon. the house will return tomorrow. what could really be done by lame duck congress? >> well, look, the hope is that there will be some kind of compromise here, because as you pointed out most americans believe that if there is no agreement there really could be a crisis here. so you are seeing some softening from republicans who took that no tax pledge back to 1986. first it was saxby chambliss. now south carolina republican senator lindsey graham. take a listen. >> when you're $16 trillion in debt, the only pledge we should be making to each other is to avoid the coming grief, and republicans, republicans should put revenue on the table, we're this far in debt, we don't generate enough revenue. i want to buy down debt and cut rates to create jobs. but i will violate the pledge, long story short, for the good of the country, only if democrats will do entitlement reform. >> and i think that's important what he said there. only i

legal team. nancy grace, the host of nancy grace on hln. also "gma" legal analyst dan abrams. dan, i'm no lawyer. but i don't understand what jeffrey pyne's lawyer was doing with the questioning to the lead detective. >> he's been asking a number of people. and he's been meaning it to be a rhetorical question. effectively, you can't say for certain who did this, or who killed her. but it's -- lawyers know you should never ask the question if you don't know the answer. particularly, when you're talking about a detective, who clearly believes, based on all of the evidence, that he does know who did it. so, it was not a smart question to ask. it's not going to be the game-changer in this case. but in retrospect, the lawyer shouldn't have done it. >> nancy, you would think that the detective does believe that jeffrey pyne's guilty, after the whole investigation, or there wouldn't be a prosecution. but that has to have some impact on the jury. >> of course it does. very typically juries believe police officers. they believe doctors. often, you'll see a doctor come in his surgical outfit b

and now the president and dan lothian from the white house, how is the president handling this? he's probably not doing as much laughing. >> reporter: what you saw today is the president bringing in americans. he says they will be impacted if the middle class tax cuts are not extending. they sent a message out there to republicans saying that they need to come on board and support this effort. republicans pushing back thinking that they don't think the upper income americans should see their taxes go up. what the president said to those who were here and those watching, put pressure on their lawmakers to support pushing out the bush era tax cuts for just middle class americans, not just through this effort but to text, to call, to send a fax, even twitter and the white house coming up with y2k referring to the amount of average middle class families would see their taxes go up by the white house says, $2200. so the pressure coming not only through social media but also the president inviting here to the white house yesterday we saw small business owners, today big ceos. on friday,

was in the clinton administration as an assistant secretary for africa. her policies in africa and suh dan were controversial. there were other issues she's been involved in, but she's got a very big job at the u.n. there are meetings on thursday and a general assembly vote has been scheduled on palestinian stateho statehood. a vote that's gripped the attention of all of the middle east and the middle east experts. and presumably, the u.n. ambassador ought to be someone well regarded around the world and is and now she's fighting for her future life in this very partisan atmosphere in washington. it's puzzling. the white house is sticking by her for now. she's not yet been nominated. harry reid said they believe the committees in charge chaired by john kerry should be in charge of this and not members from other committees like homeland security and intelligence and armed services who are getting involved in this. but as you pointed out, none of the republican senators asking questions chair anything. it's becoming very personal and very puzzling indeed. >> one last sort of puzzling hmt of this

a few words about our california former attorney general, congressman dan lungren. congressman lungren was first elected to congress in 1978, where his legal background was instrumental in his leadership on judiciary, criminal juiceties and immigration issues. he was called back to state service in 1989 and successfully ran for attorney general where he served from 1991 to 1999. as attorney general, congressman lungren helped author and later defended in court california's landmark three strikes and you're out law. during his tenure and due to his tough on crime policies. crime plunged 30% to historic lows in california. after a few years in the private sector -- sector and the aftermath of september 11, 2001, congressman lungren decided to return to congress and was re-elected in 2004. since his return, congressman lungren has used his time and talents as a member of the judiciary and homeland security committee. throughout his career, congressman lungren has supported, and been supported by his wonderful wife bobbie and their family. thank you, congressman lunfwren for your contribut
want to thank you the program organizers for bring this together. dan has written a wonderful book and i think that you'll be impressed with what he's put together in the celebration of prohibition and the antiprohibition movement. it's an exciting time to talk about prevention for the reason that the election has been questioned the antiprovision before us all over again. in addition to develop initiative in colorado and washington, we also have in massachusetts and the new announcements and our island and maine the legislators and those of us in the jurisdiction to get the question of decriminalization of marijuana for recreational use. so, the question of the day i think is what lessons can we draw from provision for today's? >> the first 1i think we all know prohibition was a terrible failure. despite the best we have to remind ourselves the good reasons. it was a very drunken country. the efforts didn't succeed. every society were no one could see that because if there is part of the world that wants something and another part wants to try at it will be provided and that is th

nonfatal shootings few dan and saturday afternoon. now they say a gas explosion in the city of springfield damaged 42 buildings. it leveled a strip club and heavily damaged a day care center. they are not sure what caused the explosion that scattered debris over several blocks. it is part of the entertainment district after a gas odor filled the area. >> any ignition source can set the detonation. it could be a spark. a telephone ringing. a door bell. >>> the expression injured 18 people. most of them being emergency ponders or utility workers. three buildings have been red tagged. they need further inspections to determine if they are structurally sound. >> that is not the only massive explosion. a historical fire caught fire outside of boston. 100 firefighters were called in to battle the flames. two of the firefighters were injured when part of the building collapsed. several dozen residents are displaced and put up in a nearby hotel. the cause that fire sub investigation. >>> 12 people have died in a fire at a bangladesh garment factory. some of the victims died trying to escape the fl
, there is also a dan malloy who passed major legislation earlier this year in connecticut. where there is a john king, there is also a kevin hougher in. now the lines have blurred even more. i think kevin is a democrat working for a republican governor. this is even truer in the electorate. you saw washington state, which i mentioned, georgia, approve charter schools for the first time. the voters in indiana out ofed tony bennett, voters in indianapolis approved reform minded candidates for school board who were supported by democrats for education reform. i know indianapolis is not synonymous with indiana. i grew up in chicago. but it strikes me as a complication in the traditional coalition. maybe it's urban versus suburban. it might also have to do with organization and the fact that the public may support part of the reform agenda. not other parts. some candidates but not others. so reforms have to get down deep at the ground level and fight the local battle and create broad, center based coalitions to win these fights. fourth, my class point, is that implementation is key. we've got to get
of what moral envision as dan pointed out in his chapter in the book he had edited commemorating the passage of the morel act that we're celebrating the 150th anniversary this year, and say his vision was for liberal education as well as toll tal yaren and as the american research university e americaed from the classical -- and the science and technology certainly science and technology draws more federal support, but without the humanities and -- there is just absolutely extraordinary work being done in the humanities which informs our intellectual culture, it's pervasive, i think it's just not as -- it doesn't produce the breakthrough technology as you said that the nano technology cousin. >> do the panelists think that the humanities are getting the short end of the stick. are they just jealous of the new buildings for the engineering college? >> i think that there's no question they feel downtrodden. in reality, if you look at the fundamental purpose of the university education, although we have the vocational focus right now sometimes said that the purpose of the college ed
of cornell and the current trustee of the state university of new york. dan convened our symposium and is a past president of the university of vermont. jim is the president emeritus of the university of michigan who put the michigan people together. pete is the head of the association of public and land grant universities and also the past president of michigan state. i think governance is a big issue now. over the last year, we have seen a lot of public university presidents founder in some way. it makes you wonder if it is a doable job. shortly after the fiasco at the university of virginia, i was talking to a lot of past and present public research university people probably the most passionately frustrated of them is, who is now at a private university in florida but is the past president at the university of wisconsin. she said, it was so much easier to run the department of health and human services, which is huge, and the university of wisconsin because i have some power. i could do something. as a public university had, we do not have any power. we are just tugboat talk to
weeks. the state of florida is on the low end. host: this was updated november 2of 2012. welcome, dan. you're on the air. caller: good morning. this is another extension of the entitlement society. we would not have to have this continued discussion about how long people have been on unemployment. it is more of the entitlement society. i believe that romney cost himself the election by making comment.n i think 30% of the country thinks they should be able to sit around and not do anything. what has the president done? passing nationalized health care. everybody who has a brain in their head understands nationalize health care has not worked in europe and canada and it will not work here in the united states. guest: i take issue with a couple of points. this is an entitlement society. i am glad my mother was able to get social security and medicare. she earned it and she got it. i'm sure the seniors feel they paid into the system and the earned it. payments are made into the system based on work that individuals do. when they lose their jobs, they get this insurance. they get what they
. be there was ted bush there was a dan ma low. where there's a john king there's a -- [inaudible] now the lines are blurring even more. i think kevin is a democrat working for a republican governor. this is even truer in the elector rate. you saw washington state, and georgia approve charter schools for the first time. the voters in indiana -- voters in indianapolis approved reform minded candidates for school board that were supported by democrats for education. i know, in indianapolis it's enormous with indiana i did group in chicago i'm familiar with the state. it strikes me as a comp indication i think it might have to do with organization and the fact that the public support part reform agenda on other part some candidates but not others. so reformers have to get down deep at the ground level and fight the local battle and create rawed center base coalitions to win these fights. fourth, my last point is that imflexation is key. we have to get the big reforms right if the public is to accept future. the common core standard are [inaudible] in content and teaching strategy. let's focus on en
, but it is actually the demand side that is broken, not the supply side. dan mintz any move the government makes to take money out of the pockets -- that means that any move the government makes to take money out of the pockets of the middle income people will hurt the economy. one third of the economy and economic problems are caused by lack of unemployment. so, if more money were spent on a jobs program, especially building roads, things that increase productivity, we would be much better off than giving tax breaks to the rich. so, i think the argument is skewed because we have a supply- demand economy, and it is the demand but is broken here. host: zachary goldfarb. guest: the most immediate problem is a continued lack of demand and economic activity which is leftover from the financial crisis and the recession, and there is a debate in washington over whether you should address that now through additional spending measures. there are not many proposals to do that, but people like larry summers have suggested reviewing the payroll tax cut. in the context in the debate over the bush tax cuts,
of everyday and i have a fixed format. maybe they are on an iphone or dan android pc. you want to give each person the best possible handful of pieces of content for them at that time. that is a growing problem. it is during free quickly and we believe it is important to solve. there is a bunch of machine learning, a bunch of infrastructure to assemble for each person. one thing i think about this is your publishing for each of $1 billion ever met. in needs to stab today. there is a model that tries to project is most likely to get air active with optimizing -- news feed optimizes what they would like to interact with. what will create a consumer of between the publisher and consumer? that is the high level. >> you think about how that system works for. lettis positive feedback. you'll get more of that thing. how do you tweak the algorithms so people ill don't show up -- it is a personalized newspaper. how do you now the difference between how they interact. people want to have both interactive, one more often but they want to see the other one and check it out occasionally. >> the main thi
in the air. people were still uncomfortable about walter having stepped down and dan rather stepping in. i think there was competition and jealousy, and the. i think on walter's part there was some regret. he he was such an icon even in his own day. what made me excited was that, through all of that, the cuure of storytelling and reporting did not change at all. in some ways, it gradually did start to change at cbs. but, for me, i could not believe it. i felt like these people were so professional. i was scared to death. that is a good thing, i think, that you feel like you have a lot of experience and you have done a lot of reporting and producing and you understand television news, but you are surrounded people who are really good and challenge you. i love that. i felt like i was able to learn some of the more traditional values you will at thechool that started in our building. i will talk about those a little bit as we go. hi also got very fortunate because i ended up overseas within about three years. .ased in london i recommend it highly for students. think about an international ass
this question -- why does dan lungren want me to die? as did a 19-year-old. who indicated that he had suffered some paralysis from an accident. as did a 40-year-old woman, approximately, for some disease she had. stunning. stunning. only thing i could see on the other side of the philosophical divide would be someone who is an army vet, having been paralyzed, sitting in a wheelchair, looking in -- at the camera, saying about a member who had voted against a defense bill, why do you want me to die? why do you want me to be in a wheelchair? in either case the civility is out the window. the ability to talk about an issue that is underlying it is last -- is lost. in the example i gave, the question would be was an appropriate level of funding for defense, were there certain problems with the defense bill? not do you want this veteran to die? in the case that i cited in which i was the subject of that ad, the issue was embreeon exstem cell research. embryonic stem cell research. not the question of what is the ethical thing to do in a very difficult circumstance. former president george w. bush ha
